  2. Macroeconomic & Corporate News 127 ASE-listed companies post profit in 2017 Out of 228 Amman Stock Exchange (ASE)-listed companies, 127 posted profit in 2017, according to a statement of the Jordan Securities Commission (JSC). In the statement, JSC Chairman Mohammad Saleh Hourani said the profit achieved by these companies amounted to around JD1.2 billion, at 5 per cent growth compared to 2016. Another 101 ASE-listed companies posted losses, totaling JD185.4 million, said the statement. Sixty of the profiting companies distributed cash dividends and free shares, at different rates, according to Hourani who added that these results were reflected by an upward trend of the ASE indicator, since the beginning of the year. Jordan's wastewater plant expansion to begin this year Expansion on the main wastewater treatment plant that serves Balqa Governorate's half-a-million residents will commence later this year, according to government officials. The expansion on the project mainly seeks to tackle the health and environment challenges created by the Wadi Shuaib wastewater treatment plant due to the increasing pressure on the facility, according to officials. The ministry announced its plan to renovate the over-pressured facility after Minister of Water and Irrigation Ali Ghazawi visited the plant on Sunday and said that the ministry has installed new filters and a ventilation system worth JD230,000 at the plant. World stocks under pressure from trade war fears Europe's stock markets slid on Tuesday as trade war fears and technology sector woes took their toll, while Wall Street managed small gains after a massive sell-off the previous day. The very partial rebound in American stocks, sparked by bargain-hunting, helped European bourses off their worst levels, traders said. "US stocks are higher in early action, coming off a sharp drop yesterday that came courtesy of festering global trade war concerns and the persistent weakness in the technology sector", Charles Schwab analysts said. * Source: Bloomberg, Jordan Times, Zawya Disclaimer Awraq Investments and its affiliates obtain information from sources they believe to be reliable, but do not warrant its accuracy or fitness for a particular purpose, and disclaim for themselves and their information providers all liability arising from the use.
